The UFC season continues on Fox Sports in October. The main event in Las Vegas has already been dubbed “the biggest fight in UFC history”, as the undefeated current lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov will take on notorious loudmouth and former champion Conor McGregor on October 7th.
McGregor was the first fighter to win titles in two divisions simultaneously but was recently stripped of these as he had been inactive for such a long time. Khabib has an undefeated record of 26-0 and will be attempting his first title defense.
The rivals already very nearly came to blows earlier this year when McGregor and his team attacked Khabib’s bus because the latter had allegedly insulted a friend of the Irishman. After an incredibly tense press conference in September, the stakes are perhaps higher than ever.
